Close behind at Number 5 is ABBA’s Gold: Greatest Hits album, which lifts seven places following their comeback announcement and is at its highest position since August 2008.

Imagine Dragons bow at Number 7 with Mercury – Act 1, their fifth Top 10 album, and North East rockers The Wildhearts finish at Number 9 with 21st Century Love Songs, their second Top 10 collection.
